Renovated Accommodations in Portland, Maine Showcase Uncommonly Good Taste

The Newly Remodeled Spaces of the Courtyard Portland Airport Win Over Travelers With Style and Substance

SOUTH PORTLAND, ME -- (Marketwired) -- 03/19/14 -- Good design is a lot like good cooking. Both require a certain level of skill and talent that, when successfully employed, earn rave reviews. When the results fall short, however, the response can be downright unforgiving. Luckily then for the Courtyard Portland Airport, its recent remodel has surpassed everyone's expectations to make the property one of the most attractive in the area. And travelers are taking note.

Regular guests of these accommodations in Portland, Maine will be relieved to know that, in pursuing a sophisticated style, the hotel did not forego its primary objective: to offer comfortable and functional lodging.

One of the biggest changes to arrive is the new, tiered Internet service. Guests can continue to enjoy the basic level on a complimentary basis, while those who need increased bandwidth have the option to purchase the enhanced level. (Platinum and Gold Rewards members receive the enhanced Internet service on a complimentary basis.)

But it's the unexpected advantages of the new design that most effectively distinguish this property from other hotels near the PWM airport. Ergonomic chairs, for example, make meeting deadlines a pleasure. And the sleekly beautiful, curved sofa does more than just entice guests to sit back and put their feet up on the ottoman. It also offers a place to perch one's iPad or phone, and it's been strategically placed so that visitors can plug in their devices to recharge while they unwind.

Each room is now awash in soothing gray, with cheerful yellow accents, rich wood finishes and tactile patterns for increased visual interest. Such thoughtful design stands out among other hotels near Old Port, Portland, Maine, both for its aesthetic relevance and for its effect. After all, just as a good meal satisfies one's physical hunger, good design makes a person feel calm, inspired and happier.

The new renovations complement the hotel's recent lobby renovation is a symbiotic way. Like the guest rooms, which are both visually and practically enhanced, the lobby now embraces Marriott's signature Greatroom concept with its Bistro, media pods and high-tech GoBoard, which puts local news, travel information and weather at its guests' fingertips.

Not surprisingly, travelers have responded enthusiastically to the changes. Renovated rooms were in high demand during the remodeling process, and with the work now complete, the hotel is poised to become the go-to destination in the area.
